Thorin by Phinnimonster Thorin by Phinnimonster
Hobbit fanart- couldn't resist!
I really liked Thorin's costume design. It's rugged yet regal. I also wanted to try drawing fur. So here we are.
(Possibly will update with a more polished version but that won't be until after Christmas)

DUDE
WAT
ah man that looks great. Could use more contrast in colours(try converting to grayscale and check on the values) but it's still really, really good.
Nice work! (and The Hobbit :heart: the movie was just beautiful)

Thank you! I agree it needs more contrast (also would like to tweak the hue a bit, after seeing it on my better monitor, it looks a bit too green).
The Hobbit was a feast for the eyes!

It's amazing how good you have captured his features! :la:
I loved him too... but Radagast (and his rabbits) is still my absolute number one 8D~

What would you have changed about it?

LordSinrath Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2012
well, lots of things, such as (forgive me if I'm being picky)

Radagast shouldn't have been so silly (the rabbit sled chase was just ludicrous)
the dwarves shouldn't have looked so silly
that big blue goblin should've been taken out
the soundtrack needed more depth; the only theme I remember is the main one

the aesthetic of the whole film was way different from LotR. I know, The Hobbit is for children--but still, a lot of adults planned to watch this. Compare the trolls shown here with the cave troll from LotR--they're way less scary, silly in fact; it's just weird because, after all, this is supposed to be the same universe set up in LotR.

this was more like a typical Hollywood film too. There were lots of unlikely escapes and predictable deus ex machina instances which were really unrealistic. People get thrown around, fall hundreds of feet, get stones hurled at them, and yet survive. Of course, this happens in LotR, but less so. In general, Jackson's Hobbit has more action and less plot intricacies than LotR.

The slow pace wasn't what bothered me. If they had paid more attention to detail and still gone by the book, that would've been fine. But no--they stuffed the extra film with mindless action scenes. It makes it seem that Jackson made it into three parts not for the artistic merit, but for money, which really annoys me.

I'm not the only one who thinks this--look at the LotR films on Rotten Tomatoes, and then look at The Hobbit. Big difference in ratings.

I agree that the film left room for improvement, and overall didn't leave me with the same feeling of satisfaction as the other LOTR movies.

About some of the characters being too silly, I noticed this as well- and that musical number at the beginning felt a bit Disney for my taste. :P It's nice they didn't cut out all the songs, but I would've preferred if they were done in a more rustic manner, with plain singing minus all the audio mixing and fancy camera movements.

I noticed that they made the creatures less scary looking as well, which leaves me a bit confused. Are they supposed to have evolved into scarier creatures after 60 years?

Funny you mention the deux ex machinas; I'd just been reading up on the trope about a month ago and I spotted them right away in the film. (Such as the scene where Gandalf finds the rock passage) It lacked a bit of the cleverness I'd hoped for. I also think they could have swapped some of the action scenes for more character development.

I think that if the second film isn't better than this one was, I'll be disappointed. But there was sufficient excitement in seeing a new LOTR film in theatres that I enjoyed it. (:
